that was unlikely. but certainly there is no probability it was going get it all smaller if president obama was elected as he was. after the president's re-election, i think a lot of conservatives and libertarians were demoralized particularly people who thought that romney was going win in some kind of a landslide. were worried obama's re-election meant the country had changed in some fundamental irreversible way. they began to doubt after the 2010 elections had looked pretty good for groups like the tea party and conservative and republicans. they began to doubt that big government could be stopped. so that's one of the reasons why i think having the discussion is important. i think there's no reason for people to give up all hope. i think when you look at the trajectory of american politics in the last few election cycles it's been bald. we have seen a lot of change in a short period of time. you are a young audience. that was going to be ushered by the american's opposition to gay marriage. remember that? how did either of them out. by by 2006 we were hearing a different story. democrat
and that's where he would meet a young man named barack obama in the 70s. he was introduced by obama's grandfather, stanley dunham. i should back up a little bit. he was african-american. he was a republican from the time of lincoln to fdr. remarkably what so far to the left that during world war ii he joined the communist party. he joined communist party u.s.a. a lot of american communists never joined communist party u.s.a. you literally sworn allegiance to the soviet union, and you committed yourself to a communist party u.s.a. caught a soviet american republic. so davis really went to the other side and after that ended up editing -- he was the founding editor-in-chief of the communist party publication of chicago, the chicago star was a down the line pro-soviet pro-stalin publication. did that for two years and then went off to honolulu was a columnist for the record, basically the publication in honolulu. bro from 1849 to 1957. his writings were incredibly anti-american at the time. especially anti-harry truman because turbine was the president opposing stalin. frank marshall d
of all, last night in my analysis, i had no beef with president obama not mentioning the word of terrorism. i said, no, he has to wait until he sees the evidence before he defines it in any way. we know it is terrorism now and president said it's terrorism. i also said he used the word tragedy in a wrong way because it's much more than a tragedy. do you agree with that? >> i agree entirely. obama is not the first to use tragedy in describing events like this. a bus accident is a tragedy and attack is an act of war. when fdr addressed the congress after pearl harbor, he didn't say december 7th, a day that will live in tragedy, it is a day that will live in infamy. it has to do with agency and cause. an accident is a tragedy and it has a cause and has to do with fate, accident, luck. when the agency is human evil that is beyond a tragedy. it's a crime. that is what we're dealing with. i agree it's a little early. it was obvious an attack. to call it terrorism you had to be sure that the motive was a political one. remember what happened in the tucson shooting where a member of c
